Philippians 4:13 Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]
I can do THAT because I’m connected to Jesus and Jesus gives me the strength and power to do THAT!!!
I can obtain THAT degree.
I can overcome THAT attack.
I can advance and achieve THAT promotion.
I can succeed and do THAT thing and do it well.
I can save THAT community, THAT family, THAT man/woman.
Forward Thinkers, the THAT is different for everyone, but the principles to do THAT are the same. If we connect to Jesus, He will empower us to do THAT.
Forward Thinkers, the theme here at Green House International Church in 2019 is GO FOR IT and I’m declaring we will go back to God and reconnect to Jesus and be empowered and strengthened to GO FOR IT and DO THAT. Let me add, while we are doing THAT, we will be stress-free and worry-free but very productive.
Shout with me, “I CAN DO THAT/// WE CAN DO THAT.”
Luke 19:1-10 New International Version (NIV)
Zacchaeus the Tax Collector
19 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.
7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.”
8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
1) Until Jesus Enters Into the Situation, Nothing Will Change
In 2019, Forward Thinkers, I challenge you to study the ministry of Jesus and see how He shifted situations, then release the faith needed under the power of possibilities through your connection with Jesus and declare you can do THAT.
Forward Thinkers, the power of possibilities has the power to change who you were and reposition you to where God has ordained you to be.
God called you blessed, rich, prosperous, more than a conqueror, and the seed of Abraham.
3) Notice Zacchaeus Was In a Position Where He Could Not Do THAT
I’m declaring no matter how long you’ve been in a defeated place or position, things are about to change in your favor.
In 2019, past failures will turn into current victories and you will no longer be held down or left behind. Your faith connected to the power of possibilities will cause you to experience a no-limitations lifestyle.
4) He Ran and Climbed Up
Faith without works is dead. You must bust a move. You must be willing to reposition yourself in an upward motion. You must run away from your current defeated position.
5) When Zacchaeus Moved in Faith He Connected to Jesus
Without Jesus, something will always be missing.
Without Jesus, I’m coming up short.
Without Jesus, I’m always seeking.
6) The People Started to Talk
Forward Thinkers, guess what? That’s part of the process of your progression because notice, talkers only talk about your past because your future irritates them.
7) But— a powerful word meaning everything before it will now take a back seat to what is about to come. But I can do THAT under the power of possibilities.
8) Zacchaeus Confessed and Made It Right With Jesus
Forward Thinkers, new life makes all things brand new and old things no longer control you.
Grace and mercy offers redemption and puts you back in position to do THAT.
9) Salvation has come to this house and everyone connected to this house can operate under the power of possibilities and DO THAT.
T Thoughts must immediately line up with destiny .
H Habits must look like your goals, not your past.
A Actions must be the vehicle driving you to your purpose.
T Talk only about what produces greatness in you and others.
Forward Thinkers, you must intentionally line yourself up with those people, places and things that push you into the place where you can GO FOR IT in 2019.
